should prove to be the case at the Sandhill station, it would seem desirable in
raising feed for the herd at this station, on typical Sandhill soil, to ensile those
annual crops that can be produced at the least cost and that produce the most
desirable nutrients for milk production. There is evidence that a grazing system
which affords green feed throughout much of the year will result in better health in
the animals as well as enabling them to produce milk of higher nutritive value,
particularly ...

In striving to maximize these measures, managers should attempt to increase
pounds of milk produced per personhour, per employee, per acre, per farm, and
per dollar invested. Of course, complete and meaningful records are essential
components of these important goals. Major differences in management exist
among dairies on which production is pasture-based, pasture-optimized, or drylot
. Constraints imposed by availability and quality of pasture, as well as abilities of
cows to ...

However, production of meat per hectare has declined significantly since 1993.
Production in the EU15 has decreased by 89% compared to 1990 (Table 4.3),
largely in response to the extensive reform of the Common Agricultural Policy in
1993, which was aimed at decreasing surplus production and dumping of
agricultural product in the world market, brought about by a European budget
crisis (Garzon, 2005). The EU15 is also the highest producer of milk on a per unit
area of pasture ...

With suckler cows, milk production and changes in daily liveweight and body
condition were calculated from net energy balance. The net energy intake of
dairy cows and their body reserves at turnout to pasture were used to simulate
milk production at pasture, daily liveweight and body condition changes, taking
into account cow energy requirements and intake capacity. Heifer growth was
determined from heifer net energy intake and liveweight. Net energy intake was
used to assess ...
